Woman accused of murdering husband

A woman was arrested in Mondulkiri’s Sen Monorom town after allegedly stabbing her common law husband, a local official, to death in a jealous rage on Wednesday, police said.

Sen Monorom town police chief Pril Raman said that suspect Meas Chantra, 26, initially told police that she tried to kill herself, then accidentally stabbed her husband, Touch Chanheng, in the stomach when he tried to wrest the knife away from her, but later admitted to killing him.

Chantra – who was Chanheng’s second wife – told police that the stabbing happened during a drunken jealously fuelled argument with Chanheng.

The victim died a few minutes after arriving at Sen Monorom Hospital. Chanheng was in charge of controlling identification cards in Sen Monorom town. He leaves behind three sons.
